Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 10/16/89 vs 10/9/89 ? "Diamonds vs Warlocks" .

Listening to the 10/16/89 cds , I feel this more to my taste that the DS comeback show 10/9/89 . First set is a flip, I suppose I like LIG, and Deal more than Music .
Both pre drums sections are stellar , with the same songs, the DS on 10/9/ gets further out, but I like the feel of the 10/16 suite of songs better , nice "Playing jam" into drums .
Post drums , 10/9 get the Death and the Attics encore, but the rest is less than awesome material, (T. Stones, and the show ending sort of Good Lovin' are some of my least favorite things), well played though . !0/ 16 has the DS reprise>Attics>Playing reprise , and the WBYGN encore , but the I Will Take You Home, will be the deal breaker for some, I actually like it .The Miracle is nothing great, but short .
I vote 10/16/89 mainly for a more "organic" flowing set 2 .

I think 10-9-89 reached higher heights, but 10-16-89 is more consistent as a complete show. Both great. But I still prefer 7-17-89! :^)

I still think that the Playin>Uncle Johns>Dark Star from 10/9/89 is the most psychedelic music the band put forth since 74.

The only addition I would make would be the 3/29/90 Eyes.
